    I am wondering what breed our new goat is... she came from the auction and i assumed she was Nigerian Dwarf because of the others that were with her but when I remember the last ND i had i am not seeing a lot of similarities besides size and the fat belly!

    She also has "weird" hair, she's got this funky undercoat stuff that's almost cottony and soft. Not sure if it's anything useable or not.

    My guess would be a very furry pygmy (different breed than Nigerian, but related) or a pygora, a cross between an angora goat and a pygmy. Maybe even a nigerian/angora, but that cross is a lot less common than pygora.

    I've seen Pygoras before but remembered them being much fuzzier. A few years ago I raised a little ND buckling and her hair coat is nothing like this girls so I assumed she might be a mix, just wasn't sure with what. [​IMG]

    Well whatever she is she is very cute! I would say Pygmy X but don't know what the X would be, obviously something fluffy!!

    That huge ball of fuzz in your hand is none other than the famous cashmere. You have a nice bit there. As to breed the little thing is most likely a mix.
